Abbott And Costello Meet The Invisible Man (1951) Boxer Tommy Nelson is accused of killing his manager. While detectives Bud and Lou investigate they come across an invisibility formula with which Tommy injects himself rather than face the police. This sparks an idea for trapping gangster Morgan by having Lou fight champ Rocky Hanlon, with Tommy's invisible help.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Lou Francis: [about graduating] This is the happiest day of my life, how did I ever graduate? Bud Alexander: [whispering] I slipped the guy twenty bucks. Now keep quiet.
  • Lou Francis: If that's not Tommy Nelson it's Frankenstein. FRANKENSTEIN!
  • Det. Roberts: [Tommy Nelson is gone] How did he get out? Lou Francis: Installments. Det. Roberts: Installments? Lou Francis: Yeah, he did a Gypsy Rose Lee, come here! [they find Tommy's clothes lying about] Lou Francis: That, that's all that's left of him. Det. Roberts: Evidently Nelson changed clothes... what was he wearing when you last saw him? Lou Francis: Air... nothing but air... and then he asked me how he looked. Det. Roberts: Wearing air? What are you talking about? Lou Francis: I went to shake his hand, his hand was gone, I looked up to speak to him, his head was gone. Then he took off his shirt, his body was gone, he took off his pants, his legs were gone! Then he spoke to me, I was gone.
  • Dr. James C. Turner, Police Psychiatrist: I know, you saw this man disappear into thin air. Do you always see things? Lou Francis: Only when my eyes are open. Dr. James C. Turner, Police Psychiatrist: Did you ever see somebody disappear before? Lou Francis: Yes sir, I have. Dr. James C. Turner, Police Psychiatrist: This may explain it, seeing things. When did this happen? Lou Francis: One day me and my brother were walking down the street... my brother disappeared. Dr. James C. Turner, Police Psychiatrist: Into thin air? Lou Francis: No, into a man hole. Dr. James C. Turner, Police Psychiatrist: How about voices? Do you ever hear strange voices? Lou Francis: Yes sir. Dr. James C. Turner, Police Psychiatrist: Aha, and when do you hear these strange voices? Lou Francis: When I get the wrong number on the telephone.
  • Dr. James C. Turner, Police Psychiatrist: [hypnotizing Lou with a watch] Tick-tock-tick-tock-tick-tock... Lou Francis: [gasps] You forgot to say the mouse went up the clock!
Movie Trivia:
  • The last names of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello's characters, Bud Alexander and Lou Francis, are actually their real middle names.
  • The picture in Dr. Gray's laboratory of Griffin, the inventor of the invisibility serum, is a photo of Claude Rains, who played the title role in The Invisible Man (1933).
  • Several shots are from Universal's The Invisible Man Returns (1940): the scenes where the guinea pig is turned Invisible (reversed footage), the harness of the invisible guinea pig moving around its cage and the scene where the Invisible Man is unpacking a suitcase of clothes left outside in the woods.
  • This was originally intended to be a straight film in the Invisible Man series. After the huge grosses from Bud Abbott Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948), the script was rewritten to make it another thrill comedy with Bud Abbott and Lou Costello. As it happened, Abbott and Costello met an invisible man in the earlier film, too, but it was a different character.
